They saved Manhattan too.

They did it on a day in September, when the astrological cartel's army stole over the island before the dawn's early light could.

The men who'd taken Zodiac's coin cut the island off from New York and took its populace hostage.

Their leader, their supreme commander Aries, made their work known to America. He claimed that no rescue would come from outside, because of the force field that now surrounded the island, or from within- because the four Avengers who were there'd been captured by his men.

The lives that he held, he said, could only be purchased with a billion-dollar ransom. If none was presented within twenty-four hours, all who weren't Zodiac would be liquidated.

There seemed to be no one who could gainsay him- the other Avengers were out of town, along with the Fantastic Four. Spidey was in Queens, and had his aunt's health to take care of.

And the Man Without Fear?

He was being held at gunpoint. )

The plot reveal of FURY #1 reminds me of WHAT IF (vol 1) #4, where an evil android wanted to create a replacement of a Massachusetts state senator. Fortunately, a Captain America was there to stop him. Not *the* Captain America.

Back in the 1990s, Ultron decided he should look beyond his "Kill all humans" philosophy.

Ultron may be a genocidal murder-bot, but he thinks ahead. "Plants and animals might someday evolve to be a threat to me. Better kill them all, too."

Three pages from WEST COAST AVENGERS #90 after the cut. Written by Roy and Dannette Thomas with art by David Ross.

Bob Harras wrote AVENGERS #280. Hospitalized after Mr. Hyde tortured him, Jarvis reflects on his time in Avengers Mansion. It included a flashback that explained the "Jarvis was the Crimson Cowl" plot point from the first Ultron story.

Edit: Ultron's "hack" of my post has been fixed.

Hypnobeam! )

So, hey maybe I can put more effort into this and add a more balanced selection of scans than I did last time.
6 pages out of an 18 page story, under the cut.

Seeing the recent re-acquirement of the Star Wars comics license by Marvel, let us look back at their first go at making Star Wars a thing. (Also, this is my first post here, let me know if I did anything wrong!)

Hi folks!

Captain America has fought many enemies over the years, and a surprising number of them have also been "Captain America." These twisted reflections of our hero represent America's fear that we aren't who we want to be, the best of the America spirit. Instead, they are distorted by hatred and greed, the America we do not want to be.

This is the story of one such man, Fifties Cap. This story is from Captain America #155 in 1972; six pages of twenty.

The man who would be Steve Rogers )

WHAT IF #4 is one of the few stories (if not the only story) that turned out to be part of the "actual history" of the Marvel Universe.
